Officials at Hanscom Air Force Base in Massachusetts faced a major setback in a key mission.
The Hanscom Collaboration and Innovation Center – charged with advancing cyber technology and enhancing critical public safety partnerships among federal, state and local agencies - requires an elevated and unobstructed path between communication systems. Also known as radio line-of-sight, that existing path was in jeopardy as obstructions, roof damage and weight issues during heavy snowstorms would soon eliminate the option of mounting antennae on the center’s roof.
With advancements made as part of an Air Force Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) effort, California-based Composite Support & Solutions Inc. filled an immediate need with new technology while cutting maintenance costs, bolstering partnerships and attracting investment to the center.
